How to Apply
1. Online Application
Apply online in just 1-2 hours. No test scores required! Our selective admissions process is designed to get to know you as a whole person, not a number. Our Application Deadlines this year are Nov 5, Feb 5, April 1, and May 15.
The strongest applicants are invited to interview with a staff member or alum. This is your opportunity to share your story and ask questions about the program.
3. Admissions Decision
Within just 2-3 weeks of your interview, you'll receive the admissions decision.
4. Final Review
(1) Select your country: We'll provide a detailed country guide to help you confidently choose your destination.
(2) Apply for financial aid: We offer both merit and need-based aid. For need-based aid, you'll submit your FAFSA or CSS Profile and fill out a short form about your family’s financial situation.
(3) Complete a medical form: Schedule a visit with your doctor to complete a medical form confirming that your health and well-being can be maintained during 8 months abroad.
5. Become a Fellow
You're in! After we confirm your country, financial aid award, and medical review status, you'll have 2 weeks to send in a $500 deposit and reserve your spot as an official Global Citizen Year Fellow. Let the adventure begin!
